    2nd owners how will we know if the 1st owner files a claim too??

    So I was just thinking about this last night, if we are the 2nd owners we have to wait until after August 1st to see if the first owner makes a claim, how are we ever going to know if this really happened? My truck had 5k miles on it when I bought it, supposedly it was never titled and the dealers service manager drove it, is the dealer really going to make a claim on this (probably haha)? Is Chrysler who I have 0 faith or trust in going to prove to us that the first owner made a claim and they mailed a check to them??

    Chrysler dealer owned vehicles are excempt from making a claim as the previous owner. You should get the whole refund. We are in the same boat with our Grand Cherokee. It was a dealer vehicle when we purchased. We decided to wait until after August first to file so that we get the full claim.

    Have you filed as a second owner? If it was never titled you should be first owner - file as such and see what settlement center says.

    I have to imagine they'll tell you if another owner filed if you go ahead and file as the first owner. Dealers don't consider themselves owners as far as registration purposes so why should Chrysler?

    Yeah that's what I was thinking as well, when I got my settlement offer Chrysler told me on the letter than I am the second owner which didn't sound right, I filed and requested the first check so I guess I be in contact with them after August 1st and ask if anyone else has filed.

    You can file now and (from memory) get a check for $2,400 and then an additional check for the remaining $600 after August 1st if the former owner doesn't file a claim too.

    Yup. That's exactly what the legal document I had to sign said.

    Which document?

    Guess I’ll get one once my month long claim has been looked at.

    I'm in similar boat... I bought both ram & JGC as 2nd owner. I'm pretty sure the previous ram owner was notified. When I took it in they asked if I was Mr. ?, my name wasn't registered with FCA on the VIN.

    I've looked on the settlement page, but didn't see a way to check if previous owner filed. I even checked by entering VIN & case # in on settlement website. Any suggestions on how to find out if previous owner filed?

    Isn't there a phone number you can call and hopefully speak to an actual human being?
